Associate & Lifetime Members

The West Virginia Press Association offers Associate Memberships and can bestow Lifetime Memberships on outstanding members. These types of membership opportunities are in addition to the general membership the association gives to daily and weekly newspaper publications throughout the state.

Associate Member

The West Virginia Press Association recognizes that not every individual, company or organization works in newspapers on a daily basis. An Associate Membership allows individuals, companies or organizations to stay involved on newspaper issues, as well as interact and support the industry.

For information about becoming an Associate Member please call 800-235-6181.
